"I went through 3 realtors before I found one that actually had my best interest [in mind]. I was able to save so much due to Rick's knowledge and understanding of the market. He helped me qualify for programs I didn't know existed and was able to get me a great deal." - M.M

★★★★★
"[Rick] took care of all the logistics and made the process enjoyable. His teaching background came in handy as we toured properties with four young boys - he was so good about making them feel part of the process as well. We highly recommend Rick!" - J.C. & S.K.

"We are so grateful to Rick for his diligence and expertise as we navigated a crazy market in buying our first home. We'd actually been looking for a good duration of before we decided to switch things up and go with Rick. Within a few weeks of seriously looking, we had our condo under . Rick's attention to detail and our needs was the best part of the experience - he had a clear picture of our dream home his head after just a couple of conversations and immediately targeted properties that fit those criteria." - K.J.

"Rick was a godsend when I started looking at houses. I had no clue what I was doing and Rick took me under his wing and explained the whole process in terms I could actually understand. He is super friendly and attentive and was always quick to answer any questions I had. He was also able to get me a good deal on my house. I would highly recommend Rick as an agent!" - O.M.

★★★★★
"As I started to go through the process of finding a home in Washington DC, I met different real estate agents through open houses. None of them made me feel comfortable to continue the process of purchasing a home. The moment I met Rick Woler, I knew that I found a person that I could trust to get me through the process of buying my first home. I found a beautiful home (newly constructed), at an amazing location. None of this would have been possible without Rick. He made the process smooth for me. I look forward to working with him in the future and would recommend him to all of my and friends looking to buy in the area." - S.P.

★★★★★
"Rick was wonderful! As first-time home buyers we wanted to make sure we had someone who would advocate for us and that we could feel comfortable with; Rick went above and beyond our expectations. We ran into a few hurdles along the way and we were so impressed by how Rick handled them, even staying up late working into the night to get an offer in for us. He remained cool as a cucumber through the stresses of negotiation and closing. I would definitely recommend Rick for anyone looking to buy property here in the DMV!" - J.W.

★★★★★
"Rick did a wonderful job helping us find a home and was very responsive to our needs. We felt very comfortable with the whole process and felt informed of every step along the way. Rick also managed to make the entire process feel a lot simpler than it really is and was quite responsive to our many random questions at all times! Also, Rick connected us with the right people right away for our lending options, home insurance, etc."

★★★★★
"This was my first condo, so it was very hard for me to part from it. Not only that, but I also had to coordinate selling the place I lived in, while purchasing a new place. I did both with Rick. He was extremely patient with me. Guiding me through my anxiety of what I should buy or sell first. And, once I was ready to sell, the placed was staged so beautifully - that we had received several offers before the scheduled open house. And, it was so well priced, that the winning offer was well above the asking price with no contingencies. Furthermore, he was so responsive that during the closing process I had no idea he was on vacation! He never missed a beat! I only found out, once I saw his IG pics! Within 5 months I sold two properties and bought one with Rick in the middle of two major holidays. It is a testament to how incredible he is as an agent, that I was able to not only keep my sanity but enjoy the process. Thank you Rick!" - C.H.

★★★★★
"Anxious is an understatement when describing how I felt to buy my first house. On top of that, I had a lot of requirements. I wanted to stay in the city (DC) in a location where I could walk to grocery stores, restaurants and the metro. I needed to have a finished independent living basement. Rick patiently helped me find the perfect house! It felt like home right away. Rick helped me negotiate with the sellers and make sure that everything was in perfect shape when I moved in. And, the process was flawless. The companies he recommended me to finance and then for closing were extremely professional and accommodating. Getting all the documentation on a zip file immediately after closing was fantastic! ****** Rick also helped me sold a property in 2019. This was an investment property, where I had to evict my tenant. So, when I met Rick - I wanted to sell it RIGHT AWAY! Rick and his team moved SO quick - I loved it! They gave me the perfect advice to stage and present this apartment at its best. They coordinated everything that had to be fixed, and I never felt pushed to do something I didnt want. They always worked to meet my requirements. Once we were ready to list it, we got an offer above the asking price right away! I was beyond happy from these results. I was so happy, that he then help me sell the condo I was living and buy my new home." - C.H.

★★★★★
"Rick is an amazing guy. Very professional. He immediately understood what we were looking for. Although we needed some time to find our dream house, Rick continued helping us during every step. He's very response with any question you may have. We highly recommend him." - K.S.

★★★★★
"Three main things I loved about my experience renting in DC with Rick: 1) he was very responsive and easy to reach, 2) he was not only personable and transparent, but genuinely cared about helping us find an apartment, and 3) he went above and beyond our expectations, looking at apartments when we couldn’t join him and contacting realtors at all hours of the day. Overall, had a wonderful experience and would definitely work with Rick again!" - R.V.D.

★★★★★
"It was an absolute joy to work with Rick throughout the buying process. We weren’t even sure what types of properties we could qualify for or when we’d be ready to begin making offers, yet Rick had creative ideas for how we could pull it off sooner than we expected. Even though our search was outside his normal urban environment, Rick found us several fantastic properties to see and turns out we ended up with our dream farm. He took care of all the logistics and made the process enjoyable. (His teaching background came in handy as we toured properties with four young boys- he was so good about making them feel part of the process as well) We highly recommend Rick!"

★★★★★
"Rick helped us purchase a home that perfectly suits us and our lifestyle! Working with Rick was such a pleasure. He asked the right questions to help us in determining what it was that we were looking for. Throughout our home search, Rick was always available to show us a property and patient with our (many) questions. He advocated for us when we found the property we were interested in, making sure our offer was strong and delivered in a timely, strategic manner. Rick also guided us through closing and gave great recommendations for the professionals we needed to bring in to round out the process. People will congratulate you and tell you over and over again that buying a home is fun and exciting, but I would argue that is a huge lie. What I can tell you with certainty is that Rick definitely made the home buying process as smooth and enjoyable as we could have hoped! We're very thankful for his dedication, time, and expertise."
